Just Us Girls #20 Split Negative

I had to quick do another challenge card before the Daytona 500 gets underway. I decided to play along with the Just Us Girls challenge #20 to make a split negative image. I haven't made one of these in ages but I've always loved the look of this technique. I stamped the butterfly image on white and black cardstocks and embossed with white and black inks. I cut them down the center, taped them together from the back, and then die cut them with Nestabilities circles and scalloped circles. I added a touch of red smooch to the little markings on the butterfly. The DSP is by Kaiser, and the flip side is the reverse color, so I decided to do a split negative of the paper as well. The sentiment is done on punched ovals and the ribbon is by SU!
Ok, I'm off to see the kick off of the 2010 NASCAR season. GO TONY!!
Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping by :)

Ooooh la la - this really popped right out - a stunning beauty. B & W with a pop of red - can't ask for more classic colors than that and you pulled them together so nicely. Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls again. We love having you as one of our "regulars". :-) Have a great week.
